The Science of Biological Decomposition: Effective Composting Methods

Length: 33 minutes

Start on the microscopic level to see the wide array of micro and macro-organisms which break down organic matter. See how to create compost and explore its water and nutrient holding capacity. Learn the basics of aerobic hot composting & how to create a good C:C (brown:green) ratio when layering. Also, see how to implement proper watering rates and how to use a thermometer to determine the pile's mesophyllic/thermophilic cycle. This shows when to turn the pile or windrow. Other methods shown include sheet, pit and worm composting. This program is very popular for teaching what compost is and how it can be effectively produced.
